What Are The Benefits of Hiring a Linkedin Lead Generation Service?

There is nothing more frustrating than spending a ton of money on advertising and hardly any leads come in. 

If you are having sleepless nights because your marketing budget has been depleted and your ROI is hardly anything, it’s time to consider a new angle.

Perhaps you have dabbled in a bit of outbound, such as cold calling and cold emailing, but have you tried Linkedin outreach?

You might say yes… And you might say, it didn’t work as well as you were hoping. 

But did you know that at Salesbread we manage to generate 1 qualified lead per day, minimum, for our clients? 

We have had clients in the past say that they have tried Linkedin outreach themselves, but they weren’t getting results, or they hired some of our competitors and were also disappointed. 

This article will discuss the benefits of hiring a LinkedIn lead generation service, like Salesbread, and the strategy we use to get 20+ leads per month

(Did you know that last year alone Salesbread generated close to 5000 high-quality leads for our clients? That beats our record of 1 lead per day. Click here for your free 15-minute consultation.)

You’re going to save more money.

As you can see below, the average cost of an in-house SDR is about $53,865 in the USA. On top of this, you will need to add additional cash compensation, which could amount to an average of $22,269

This then means that on average, if you had to hire one sales development representative you’re going to be paying an average of $76,134 a year for one SDR salary.  This salary doesn’t take into account other expenses associated with a full-time salesperson, which could include:

  • Employer taxes
  • Software licenses
  • Management and admin costs
  • Training costs
  • Human resources 
  • Data costs 
  • Office furniture

Whereas, hiring a Linkedin lead generation agency will cost you a mere fraction of what it would cost to hire a full-time sales team.

In fact, you can expect to pay between $3000 – $5000 a month. Think about it… Even if you had to outsource a lead generation company and pay them $5000 per month for a year, it will still be cheaper than hiring a full-time SDR. 

The best part is that you don’t even need to hire a Linkedin lead generation service for months on end. With Salesbread there is no fixed contract. When you feel you have enough sales leads in your pipeline, you can halt the campaigns. 

This takes the stress out of having to hire a full-time SDR which comes at a much greater cost than hiring a company that specializes in LinkedIn lead gen.

Hiring a Linkedin Lead Generation Service = More flexibility.

If you do decide to hire a b2b lead generation team, you can choose how long you would need to partner up with them. Some companies do want you to sign a minimum contract, between 3 and 6 months, but this would still give you more flexibility than hiring a full-time employee.  

Some b2b sales companies also allow you to choose how big or small you would like your sales team to be. 

Remember to ask all these questions before hiring a Linkedin lead gen company.

At Salesbread, we don’t lock our clients into contracts, but rather allow our stats to speak for themselves.

This means that if you only have a budget for 3 months for generating leads, that’s not a problem. You can stop the campaigns and then pick up again with us, once you are ready to continue. 

Hiring an outreach team, also means that you will have more time to focus on closing deals, instead of running actual Linkedin lead generation campaigns.

You don’t have to come up with a lead generation strategy yourself.

Coming up with a LinkedIn lead generation strategy can be tough, especially if you don’t have the know-how

You might think that sending out bulk messages via automation might be the fastest way to find new leads, but unfortunately, this is probably the quickest way to lose new business

Why?

Because Linkedin users get spammed daily by sales messages. So if you aren’t sending personalized messages, and if your target audience isn’t data-driven, then you aren’t going to get high conversion rates.

If you hire a Linkedin lead generation service, you can have the peace of mind that they will know exactly how to target the right decision-makers, with a strategy that gets results.

For example, when you partner up with Salesbread, it usually takes us one week to build an ultra-targeted list of the right audience

How do we do this? 

By using a data-driven approach, we look for patterns of your current buying customers. 

What do all your buying customers have in common?

  • Are they all located in a specific area?
  • Do they have the same amount of employees?
  • Do they use a specific CRM tool?
  • If they are in the healthcare space, which group of people is specifically buying from you?

In fact, we use 34 different target filters in order to find specific patterns when building a list of prospects.

Once we have built an in-depth list of your target market, we will then work on writing personalized copy for your prospects. 

This takes time and research but it’s one of the reasons why we have such a high success rate when it comes to prospecting.

We guarantee 1 qualified lead per day minimum for our clients.

Therefore, by hiring a LinkedIn lead generation agency, you can take the stress out of building your own marketing strategy. Rather allow the professionals to handle your campaigns for you, so you can focus on closing deals. 

(NOTE: At Salesbread you will be in direct contact with Jack Reamer. We don’t hand you off to a campaign manager who might lack experience. Jack has over a decade of outreach experience, therefore you can be sure that your campaign is in good hands. We only onboard a few clients at a time, this ensures our utmost attention on getting you potential leads.)

You don’t have to worry about purchasing lead generation tools

Lead generation tools can be costly. 

At Salesbread we make use of various tools that we pay for once-off. This means that you don’t have to worry about paying for these tools.

This includes:

  • Linkedin Sales Navigator
  • Crunchbase
  • Apollo.io
  • Expandi.io
  • Zoominfo

All these tools are essential because they help us build the best prospecting lists, with the freshest data. 

These tools cost thousands of dollars a month; we pay for them so that you don’t have to. 

Here is an estimate of what these tools could cost you if you had to pay for them yourself:

Zoominfo – Used for prospect data  

Price: On average, $18,321 a year 

LinkedIn Sales Navigator – Used for outreach and sales data

Price: $79.99 per month, or $134 a month for a team package. 

Crunchbase.com – This is a specialized form of tech for account data and targeting.

Price: $29 per month for the pro versions and higher for the enterprise version

Expandi.io – A tool used for Linkedin outreach

Price: $99 per month

Quickmail.io – This is used for email follow-ups and warming up your inbox

Price: The starter plan is $49 a month, and the pro version is $69 per month

Zapier.com – Will be used for automating and reporting

Price: There are various plans available from $20 – $600 per month.

If you had to purchase these tools for your in-house team, it could cost you a pretty penny.

Most of these programs have different plans that you can choose from, but having to purchase all of them can eventually add up even for their basic plans. 

For example, Zoominfo costs on average $18,321 per year for small startups; this is why outsourcing lead generation also saves you money.

You will have more time for yourself and your employees

When you know that your lead generation is in expert hands it frees up time for you to focus on the aspects of your business that you enjoy. 

You don’t have to worry about finding people to purchase your product, as that aspect of your business will be taken care of by a lead generation service.

If you decide to use someone in-house as a sales rep,  you might increase pressure on them to get leads.

Perhaps they need to be trained, which also takes time. And it also takes a certain type of person to be an SDR; it isn’t a role for everyone. 

It requires a certain amount of tenacity to keep going even after being rejected. 

Therefore, when you outsource a lead gen company, you free up time for your current employees to focus on their current roles and customer relations, instead of stressing about a new role that might not be the best fit for them. 

Quick Growth for your business

Probably the greatest benefit of hiring a Linkedin lead generation service is that you can expect quick growth for your business.

With a lead gen company taking care of your sales funnel and ensuring a steady stream of qualified leads, all you have to do is focus on closing deals.

Last year alone Salesbread generated close to 5000 qualified leads for our clients.
